I appreciate that the NAACP is committed to prevention of racial profiling and the equality of everyone. I would like them to take a stand against the attitudes that have taken hold in the black community promoting single-parent families, animosity against anyone in power, glorifying of the use and abuse of women, glorifying the activities of gangs, including the killing of other blacks. I believe these are the things Eric Holder was referring to when he called us a nation of cowards. It's time that we talk about it and come up with some plans to make things better.

Educational Fraud

I agree. The problem here is that the universities see these student athletes as cash cows. With the case of Penn State's coach molesting kids as an example, the college covered it up so they'd continue raking in the cash from their athletic programs. The result of the investigation was little more than a slap on the wrist for the college. Their football program should have been shut down for 5 years. But again, follow the money. They only care about the money the athletes in their sports programs bring in, not what happens to them once they've "graduated".
I'm with you ThasicAlambra. I'm also a mechanical engineer. I'd love to debate Mr. Nye. I watched his debate against Ken Ham. What was Bill's explanation for evolution? The question was about how to explain evolution in light of the 2nd law of thermodynamics. The Sun! It is the sun's energy that drives evolution. Wow! Thanks, Bill, that just fills in ALL the blanks. What an idiot. Maybe he should consider this: According to geologists, the Earth is about 6 Billion years old. Biologists estimate that life has existed on Earth for about 4 Billion years. 4 Billion = 4 Thousand x Million. If it takes Millions and Millions of years for an evolutionary change to occur, let's just say 2 Million, we have 2 Thousand cycles in the time line where evolution can occur. 4 Billion = 4 Thousand-Million = 2 Thousand cycles or iterations of 2 Million years. Would 2 thousand iterations be enough to accomplish what's needed to go from a single celled organism to the huge variety of life we see today? I'll give you a hint - NO! If you agree then either more time is needed, OR evolution happens faster than what biologists claim. Which is it?
The only reason they settled is because they didn't want any details showing up in court for the public to see.

Is the Islamic State Really Un-Islamic?

Actually, you're wrong. Islam does allow for the killing of innocents, as long as it meets their goals of killing infidels. The Quoran explains this. ISIL IS being Islamic. Don't be fooled.
This is sooo rich. "the competition attacked the legitimacy of same-sex marriages." And yes, same sex marriages attack the authority of God created marriages. Not so funny when the tables are turned, huh? I'm considering that later in life, I'll marry my son. That way, I can pass all of my assets to him tax free. I'll bet uncle Sam won't be too happy about that. I guess that's why they call it the law of unintended consequences. :-)
It's so very interesting to me how these two approach the problem. One guy hammers the worn out drum of whites keeping the blacks down. The other guy lays out just a few of the complexities of the problem and says, "here's how we can begin to affect change." Undeterred, the other says again, "it's about race." This really shows why this situation never gets better. The ones who are speaking the loudest are the ones who cry "racist."
Thank you. That's my point exactly.
Is she saying that unplanned pregnancies are caused by unplanned sex? Oh, no, she's saying that women should be able to do whatever they want and someone else should be required to pay for it. Condoms are cheap. She didn't mention that Hobby Lobby is willing to pay for 16 forms of birth control. They're not willing to pay for the ones that cause abortion. Interesting.
So the "Get Out the Vote" campaign can bus people to polling locations, but 4 months before an election, they can't get those same people to the BMV? I'm calling B.S.
